DUBAI: Dubai Design Week (DDW) is set to return for its sixth edition from Nov 9 to 14 at Dubai Design District (d3) and in locations across the city, it has been announced. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the annual design festival will take an all-new approach and will include both physical and digital components.
This year, Dubai Design Week will have a special focus on local talent and sustainability. Themes related to “locality, collective work, future imagining and sharing of public space under physical and mobility restrictions are put forward in this year’s edition for designers and creatives to investigate,” the event states on its website.
The revised programme includes an open call for the Abwab 2020 pavilion as well as a new UAE-designer-focused exhibition.
